I can understand why the Minister of Justice should stand up for Quebec as I do for St. John. I was speaking in all kindness to the Minister of Marine and Fisheries, but he seemed to get enraged, and if he chooses to do so he has a perfect right. I say that the whole system is rotten. I say that these examinations should
be held by a board and not by a single person ; I say that the examiners should be stationed at the great ports in Canada. I say the present system is ridiculous aud whether it has existed from confederation or not, if it is a bad system it should be abolished.
Mr. TAYLOR-. Will the minister bring down a detailed statement, so that we may have it on ' Hansard,' of how much of this $2,000 is for travelling expenses, how much for salary, and how much for other things. If he promises to do that we will let the item pass.
